VENDOR'S COMMENTS We were attracted to Rose Cottage because it offered something different to everything else we looked at; character, a big garden, a rural feel and lots of flexibility to reshape the down stairs layout to suit us. The massive added benefit for us has been the development of Forge Wood which brought with it a fantastic school for our girls and lots of new friends within walking distance. We have loved living here and it's been a massive decision to move on to start a new chapter elsewhere.
